At eighteen, Christopher is restless and longs for something he cannot name. His mother vanished when he was very small, and after spending more than ten years travelling on the rivers and canals, drifting between towns and schools with mostly only his dad and brother, Jay, for company, he is desperate to escape that claustrophobic existence. When they return to settle in Arlow, a town they haven’t been back to in over a decade, everything changes.
Malachi has given up on love. He lost his heart when he lost his innocence. Now, at twenty-nine, he just exists—getting drunk, fixing cars, and playing the music he loves.
When their paths cross one night at a gypsy camp, Christopher thinks he's found what he's been looking for, but Malachi is afraid. He's afraid their love will destroy everything Christopher has ever known. They are ghosts from each other's pasts, and if Malachi's secrets are revealed, more than just innocence will be lost in their wake.
Lyrically written, with captivating characters.
This just flows. The setting was particularly well-done and the characterizations were 3-dimensional and believable. And thank heavens for the happy ending, which some may find too hopeful but was desperately needed for balance. Well-done!
